CNI Fall 2019 Membership Meeting
December 9-10, 2019
Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington, DC
Representatives from CNI member organizations gather twice annually to explore new technologies, content, and applications, to further collaboration, to analyze technology policy issues, and to catalyze the development and deployment of new projects. Each member organization may send two representatives. Anyone may propose a project briefing, including groups/individuals from non-member institutions and organizations.
Registration details were sent to delegates in September.
Project briefings are the very heart of every membership meeting, allowing participants to interact informally about projects, initiatives, and ideas of their own choosing. Plenary sessions are held at the beginning and end of each meeting and include presentations of CNI’s latest initiatives as well as insights from national and international leaders in the networked information community.
